The countdown is on to ARBS 2018, Australia’s only air-conditioning, refrigeration and building services trade exhibition, back in Sydney for the first time since 2010 and will be held at the new International Convention Centre (ICC) from 8th to 10th May 2018. With more than 300 exhibitors and in excess of 9000 visitors, the exhibition is forecast to be the largest ARBS to date and will offer the industry unrivalled access to the latest in HVAC&R in the southern hemisphere.

Alongside the exhibition runs the Speaker Series featuring a range of exciting and informative presentations including a case study highlighting the unique features of Sydney ICC’s central energy plant. And given ARBS 2018 is held within this very impressive building it naturally lends itself to be a topic of conversation.

The session will explore challenges faced throughout the project and key lessons learnt and be delivered by the lead consulting engineers and contractors behind the $1.5 billion redevelopment. Presenters, Shane Durkin, Engineering Services Manager, AG Coombs; Michael Dagher, Technical Director – Buildings, AECOM; and Barry Abboud, National Sales Manager, Engineered Systems - Building Technologies & Solutions, Johnson Controls, will provide details on performance levels achieved in the last 12 months and reflect on whether the project has delivered on expectations.

The ICC project commenced in 2013 and took over 5.8 million hours to complete with the venue officially opened in December 2016. A public-private partnership between the NSW government and a consortium of private companies, the ICC is constructed on the site of the old Sydney Exhibition Centre. The venue delivers 40 per cent more exhibition space than its predecessor and is the biggest combined exhibition, convention and entertainment precinct in Australia.
